My story

[p]In April 2019, I will be running The London Marathon, fundraising for the Havant and East Hants Mind. This charity is very close to my heart, as I've been working at a boys SEN school in Havant for nearly 3 years and have witnessed first hand through working with these brilliant boys how important it is to have support and to talk to someone to help when struggling with mental health. [/p][p]Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. [/p][p]Havant and East Hants Mind are a mental health charity based in Havant, they work to promote good mental health and seek to support and empower people to lead a full life as part of their local community.[/p][p]Here is what the money raised will help Havant and East Hants Mind to provide:[/p][p]£25 pays for a venue where people experiencing isolation and loneliness people can come together in a safe trusted location.[/p][p]£75 pays for their Children Service to give and deliver an assembly in a school to break the stigma of mental health in schools.[/p][p]£150 pays for 6 one to one sessions with an adult or child - helping them to manage their symptoms of debilitating mental ill health better or to prevent self harm.[/p][p]£550 will provide us with the resources to support someone with immediate debt / housing or other social crisis issue. To fix the immediate problem, to come up with plan and to obtain the support for long term solution. [/p][p]£750 pays for 10 weeks of support for a child at risk of abuse.[/p][p]£1,250 completely funds a 6 week symptom management course for 10 people.[/p][p]£2,500 pays for the recruitment, training and support of 10 volunteers for 1 year to help Havant and East Hants Mind reach more people than they have ever done.[/p][p]I want to raise as much money as I can to help people get the support they need and to promote the charity and make people aware that its okay to not be okay. I've never run further than 10k so understand how much of a challenge it will be but I know it will be worth it for such a worthy cause.[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read and get my thoughts on everything, any donation at all will be greatly appreciated!
